Sales & Marketing Expertise


Established in 2002, Tourism Portfolio is the leading representation company in Australia because we have consistently exceeded our clients’ expectations.

We are in market and on-the-ground to assist you, the event planner, with your event whether it’s within Australia or internationally. We work alongside you every step of the way – assisting with creative ideas you may have and how we can achieve those and understanding your desired outcomes.

The domestic and international businesses we represent are the best of the best. We wouldn’t represent them if they weren’t.

A mix of destination management companies and venues, they offer exceptional service, high quality facilities and, when it comes to our DMC partners, years of experience that provide you with the peace of mind you need when taking your events international.


We strongly believe in a collaborative, transparent approach. Whether working with our portfolio of clients to enhance and develop their sales and marketing efforts or for meeting planners looking for that important ‘edge’ when selecting a venue or destination, it’s our transparent, professional commitment that has enabled us to successfully build our business – and yours – with proven results.

We provide a full range of services to our partners that include:

  • Telemarketing activity
  • Regular reporting, detailing on industry trends within Australia and New Zealand
  • Access to databases of corporate, association, PCO and incentive houses
  • Experienced sales professionals
  • Familiarisation trips
  • Targeted marketing campaigns
  • Public relations
  • Events and workshops
  • Project work
  • Strategic business planning
  • Face-to-face meetings with event planners
  • Representation at industry events and trade shows
  • Leisure representation

We are a small business, and we like it that way!  Our team consists of experienced, passionate, dedicated individuals who share the common values and work ethic that embraces a ‘can do’ attitude and engages a hands-on approach. Together, we work hard to deliver the right outcomes for the clients we represent.

Our unique destination marketing approach is founded on decades of experience in the business travel industry, excellent contacts and a passion for what we do. This, coupled with our knowledge of the travel and business events (MICE) world means we “get it” in a way others often don’t. And our commitment, determination and strong work ethic mean we don’t just get it… we get it done!

Trust is important to us and to our clients and customers. Our commitment, professionalism, honesty, integrity, knowledge and enthusiasm underpins how we work each day to build long term partnerships and relationships.

The Tourism Portfolio approach is founded on the strong client-focused background of our founder and Managing Director, Donna Kessler.

With over 25 years’ experience, we provide:

  • an understanding of what our customer needs
  • connections to the world, building global partnerships
  • a commitment to delivering exceptional, creative proposals and competitive pricing
  • solid destination and venue/ resort knowledge
  • tailor-made, customer driven solutions
  • attention to detail – and to you.

We understand that our network is our net worth.

Our strong reputation and broad experience within the travel and business events industry means our contacts are second to none. We use our profile to network actively and regularly attend travel industry and media events. Donna and the team are members of various industry bodies and our contacts mean we can create effective partnership marketing campaigns, bringing together tour operators, hoteliers and tourist boards to create exciting trade and consumer propositions.

The present state of the events industry has highlighted our need for partners with the knowledge, experience and wide-ranging expertise to ensure we maintain and build on our most important of assets – relationships. We perceive our business as a social act and in Tourism Portfolio we have a partner making things happen, actively creating and maintaining strong relationships among a network of industry stakeholders in Australia and New Zealand, generating new opportunities for business and defining the success of TERRAEVENTS as a known and trusted brand within this important marketplace.
